I just reformatted a computer running Windows XP and Office XP.  

In Outlook 2003, I'd like to show my existing contacts when selecting "To" in a new email.   Here are the steps that (I thought) would link my address book to the To/CC buttons.   Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work.

I completed the following steps (also see Word attachment with screen shots).

- Tools/options/mail setup tab
- Email accounts
- Add new directory or address book
- Additonal address book
- Outlook address book
- Then exit outlook and reopen it

What am I missing?   Does anyone know how I can link the Outlook (or Personal) Address book to the To/CC/BC button in a new email?
